MUSIC FOR NOV. 2020
‘1,000 pounds of rain’
In celebration of delightful November weather, here are Howling Turbines performing a song from 1994. The title was inspired by a 1990 Cowlix performance at the Drydock, for which — so as not to disturb the fried-clam scarfing multitudes — we had to carry the equipment up a cast-iron fire escape to the second-story performance area in a pouring rain. I lugged the title around for years not knowing what the song would be about. Finally finished around the time the ’Lix were splitting up, “1,000 Pounds” turned out to be a cry of distress at the advent of middle age.
